    No, it didn't cover it. It was for personal use, not for farm use. Believe me, I had the red ***.

    grey dog you are right. it was ignorant of me to leave it unsecured. I just got comfortable and believe me it won't happen again. I will once again be diligent in taking care of securing my equipment.

    I agree! About twenty years ago ,My wife at the time witnessed one of our neibour`s houses being robbed, and did not want to say anything to the police, But I insisted, well we ended up in court and the punk thought it was a joke until he got his sentence!

    I've never really gotten the key thing on these mowers, they're all generic, you can BUY one at Home Depot for a couple of bucks.:confused:

    Many years ago, I bought a gun that was stolen, unbeknownst to me. I knew the kid I bought it from, said his grandpa gave it to him. I had no reason to believe otherwise.

    Well, it was a small town, and this kid had stolen it from a guy who lived 2 miles away. Eventually, I heard someone talking about it, and called the Sheriff's office and told them I might have a stolen gun.

    Long story short. I had to go to court to testify. The owner got his rifle back. I lost the money I paid for the gun, $100 if I remember correctly, which in the 70's, was quite a bit of money, and the kid got a slap on the wrist and joined the Army, so he didn't even have to pay a fine. I told the judge that I thought I should be reimbursed for the loss, but he never even mentioned it in his ruling, so I was the only one that really got screwed, and did absolutely nothing wrong. So much for the justice system when it comes to property theft.
